MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - On Monday, a judge rejected an age discrimination case involving a former Morgan County Drug Task Force agent.

Former Drug Task Force Commander Doug Key claims he was wrongfully terminated by current Sheriff Ana Franklin. The termination happened soon after Franklin took office.

Sheriff Franklin and former Sheriff Greg Bartlett spent several hours testifying in the federal case that was ultimately rejected by the judge.

The judge ruled in favor of the defense, citing a lack of evidence supporting Key's claim.
